Jurassic World Just Explained A Dominion Plot Point You Missed

Published

on

Camp Cretaceous explains a plot point in Jurassic World Dominion but most audiences will never know it since the movie never references the show.

Warning: SPOILERS for Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 5

A plot point in Jurassic World Dominion you might have missed was explained in Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. In its fifth and final season on Netflix, Camp Cretaceous sees the teenage campers still stranded on Mantah Corp Island, where they learn the CEO of the evil corporation is Daniel Kon (Andrew Kishino), the father of Kenji (Ryan Potter). After surviving numerous dinosaur attacks on Isla Nublar, the kids have realized the importance of protecting dinosaurs from Mantah Corp, which has developed technology to control the cloned animals and make them fight each other.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

In Jurassic World Dominion, BioSyn and its director, Dr. Lewis Dodgson (Campbell Scott), purchased the dinosaur assets of InGen and Masrani Global Corporation, which went bankrupt after the fall of Jurassic World. With support from the U.S. government, BioSyn built a dinosaur sanctuary in Italy’s Dolomite mountains, where they herded many of the animals that were brought to the mainland from Isla Nublar and were released into the wild by Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon). However, BioSyn also had the technology to control the dinosaurs remotely. The corporation put this tech to use in Jurassic World Dominion when the sanctuary caught on fire. BioSyn herded the dinosaurs into the inner part of their facility, which is where the Gigantosaurus had its final battle with the T-Rex. BioSyn being able to control the dinosaurs was a minor but important plot point that the film failed to fully explain.


However, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous seasons 4 and 5 are primarily devoted to explaining how and why BioSyn had the technology to control dinosaurs in Jurassic World Dominion. After Kenji, Darius (Paul-Mikél Williams), Brooklynn (Jenna Ortega), Ben (Sean Giambrone), Yasmina (Kausar Mohammed), and Sammy (Raini Rodriguez) escaped Isla Nublar, they became stranded on an island owned by Mantah Corp in Camp Cretaceous season 4. This new terrain was terraformed into several different environmental sections and not only housed dinosaurs, including Jurassic Park III‘s Spinosaurus, but other prehistoric beasts like a sabretooth tiger. The Campers learned that a scientist named Dr. Mae Turner (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) developed the technology to control dinosaurs but it was all so Mantah Corp could find investors to finance their plans for a dinosaur fight club. In Camp Cretaceous season 5, Mantah Corp sold their technology to BioSyn, with Lewis Dodgson (voiced by Adam Harrington), personally coming to Jurassic World to buy Mr. Kon’s tech.


Jurassic World Dominion Failed To Make Camp Cretaceous Important

While audiences watching Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous benefit from getting the full story of the Jurassic World saga, Dominion didn’t reference the Netflix animated series at all. How BioSyn could mentally control dinosaurs was an important element that Jurassic World Dominion skims over, trusting that the Netflix animated spinoff will fill in the blanks weeks after the movie hit theaters. But the greater audiences who watched Dominion don’t necessarily watch Camp Cretaceous so they never get the full story of several key events in the film. Indeed, Camp Cretaceous season 5 also explains how Dodgson has the Barbasol can the late Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) lost in Jurassic Park but the majority of Dominion’s audience won’t know the answer.


In this way, Jurassic World Dominion actually shoots itself in the foot by failing to reference Camp Cretaceous‘ existence, especially since the movie relied on the Netflix show to fill in so many blanks. Further, there’s no mention at all of Darius, Brooklynn, Kenji, and their friends in Dominion when it would have been easy to highlight the remarkable fact that six teenagers survived on Isla Nublar for months after Jurassic World fell. Considering how much Camp Cretaceous serviced all three Jurassic World movies with tie-ins to the main stories and by deepening characters like Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong), it would have been far smarter for Dominion to point movie audiences to watch Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous instead of pretending like the animated show doesn’t exist.


All 5 seasons of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous are available to stream on Netflix.

Published

on

Jessica Klein, an award-winning television writer and producer who was a key contributor for six seasons on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” died of pancreatic cancer at her home in Beverly Hills on July 13. She was 66 years old.

Klein’s death was confirmed by her daughter, Shira Rose, who shared that her mother died “fulfilled, surrounded by her biggest fans, her family.”

After moving to Los Angeles in the late 1970s, Klein married Steve Wasserman, her writing partner. The duo collaborated as writers and executive producers on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” launching Klein’s career in prime time.

Klein collaborated on “Just Deal,” Sk8″ and “Scout’s Safari” with Tommy Lynch, her creative partner after Wasserman’s death in 1998. Other notable credits include “Northern Exposure,” “Mancuso,” “FBI,” “Gabriel’s Fire,” “As the World Turns” and “Secret Central.”

Born in Manhattan on March 14, 1956, Klein was raised by her mother, a senior administrator at Weill Cornell Medical College, and her father, the co-founder of Barton’s Candy and a Holocaust survivor. Klein graduated from Harvard Radcliffe in 1977 with a degree in psychology and social relations.

Klein first ventured into the television industry as an assistant on “Sesame Street” before teaming with Wasserman. Later in her career, she worked as a writer and producer on “One Life to Live” and head of creative on “Make It Pop” and “The Other Kingdom.”

Klein married again in 2000, wedding painter and audiovisual expert Isaac Levenbrown. In 2011, the couple moved to Virginia, where Klein began to teach screenwriting at Drexel University. After Levenbrown’s death, Klein relocated to Toronto and then Los Angeles once more.

Klein is survived by her daughter, Shira Rose; her stepchildren, Josh, Brittany and Jonathan; her grandchildren, Shayna, Mendel, Zisi, Asher, Lily and Elliott; and her brother, David.

Reshoots Wrap On Latest Nick Fury MCU Project

Published

on

Samuel L. Jackson announces that reshoots have wrapped on Secret Invasion, the Disney+ MCU series in which he is playing Nick Fury yet again.

Samuel L. Jackson has announced that reshoots are wrapped on his upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series Secret Invasion. The Academy Award-nominated actor has been a part of the MCU since the very beginning, appearing as the S.H.I.E.L.D. leader and Avengers founder Nick Fury in the original 2008 Iron Man. He has gone on to reprise the role in more than a dozen other MCU projects, including a voice-only role in the animated series What If…? and a major appearance in 2019’s Captain Marvel under layers of de-aging technology. He is often spotted working with former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, the character introduced in 2012’s Avengers, played by How I Met Your Mother‘s Cobie Smulders.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Both Smulders and Jackson are set to re-team in Secret Invasion, which is currently expected to premiere in early 2023. Part of the upcoming Phase 5 of the MCU, the six-episode series will focus on the former S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel attempting to track down an alien menace after they discover that shape-shifting Skrull have been impersonating various humans across the globe in a clandestine takeover. The cast of the series includes Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald, Carmen Ejogo, and Dermot Mulroney, with appearances by MCU veterans Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Don Cheadle as War Machine, and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos.


On his official Instagram page, Jackson just shared a picture of himself wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with Nick Fury’s face. In his caption, in addition to announcing that he was wearing “pachy-pants” with elephants all over them, he revealed that it is wrap day on Secret Invasion. While Nick Fury “chills,” he will be heading to Broadway to play Doaker Charles in the August Wilson play The Piano Lesson. Check out the post below:

Considering the fact that Jackson is committed to a major role away from the set of Secret Invasion, it is safe to say that the bulk of filming is well and truly done. This spells out good news for fans who are eager to see Marvel’s take on the body snatcher trope. The series has now moved fully into the post-production phase, with the additional footage joining the early footage that has already had the opportunity to be edited.


Now that Secret Invasion has progressed to the next step, it is likely that Marvel will begin the slow drip of promotion for the series. There are quite a few MCU projects coming between now and the release of the series, including She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, so it likely will be some time before an official trailer is released. However, now that everything is in the can, they will have the ability to start sharing production stills and other tidbits from the series while fans wait.
